If I run `joe -hex' in an UTF-8 terminal windows (most
modern Linux systems have this by default) to edit a
file in hexdump mode, and try to insert a byte in hex
(<Backtick> <X> <F> <8> <Enter>), I get multiple bytes
(corresponding to the UTF-8 encoding of that Unicode
character). For example, instead of an F8 byte, I get
two bytes: C3 B8.
I think this should be corrected like this: UTF-8 mode
should be disabled when hex mode is activated.
